Crawford Family graveyard

The Garden State Arts Center is located on 1200 acres that was granted to John Browne in 1687 by the King of England. They buried the family right on the farm. Eventually the land was sold and became Parkway property. Now surrounded by the Vietnam Memorial & the Garden State Arts Center, (exit 116) the plot is fenced off to protect it. Just another reminder of how what once was rolling farms became something quite different in this suburban sprawl we call New Jersey…
